Jason Eckert

Aside from being 98% chimp, I am a dean, teacher, author, father, grandfather, musician, science buff, arcade game freak, technogeek, software engineer, cloud architect, computer collector, UNIX & Linux preacher, coffee worshipper and outdoor adventure lover. The illustration shown here was created by Choolee (https://art-by-choolee.com) based on her impression of me only. I’m also pretty easy to get along with. Feel free to drop me a line via email (jason.eckert@trios.com), Twitter or LinkedIn (I ditched Facebook/Meta many years ago for good and so should you). You can use the Sections menu in the navbar to peruse my site, or search for specific articles and blog posts using either Search or Archive. Recent articles and blog posts are listed below.
